"Man! This is the wrong place to get tired."

Muhammad Ali claimed in an interview that he said this to a worn-out George Foreman that was tired from punching air during their 1974 "Rumble in the Jungle." :)

Was informed yesterday that jockathan died last year. Sorry to hear that. He added plenty of drama and schadenfreude to the forum. Strangely, I learned of this sad news within a a week of seeing Ian Hunter perform here in the States. As you may recall, he was one of Jock's fave rock and rollers.

I'm back after a long hiatus. Been VERY busy with life/work but always enjoy a few wagers and the endless search for a solid 'system' for consistently picking winners. With that in mind I'll begin posting a daily selection in both the personal campaign thread and the relevant US sport thread. And I look forward to picking up some winners from other posts here.

Cheers all :cheers

Welcome back, with your sagacious signature and all! ;-)

Off to see Mr Hunter next week, hope he's not worn himself out with all the US dates! Jock was indeed a fan & mooted going to one of his gigs together though it didn't come off in the end. Sad about his passing, regardless of the extent to which one agreed or not with his views on various topics!

Thanks guys. :thumbs

Harry: You will LOVE the Hunter show. He's 77 but still possesses plenty of the rock star mojo. Great sounding voice and tight musical performance. The backup band is stellar. Picking up a vinyl copy of his latest album, Fingers Crossed, as the title track and other songs he played from it were quite good. Of course, All the Way From Memphis and Dudes were tops! :clap Managed to pick up an autographed poster at the show as a nice souvenir.

Yeah, looking forward to it. Seen him several times now over the last few years and the last Mott reunion (think I'm on the DVD of that gig)! '#

It was really good thanks. Excellent set covering the whole of his solo career, with a few Mott classics for good measure. Hopefully he'll be back again soon.
